Rally Updates - Start TimesPlease note the following Rally updates: Owing to other activities at the sites we have had to put back the start time of several of our Rallies that are being held on school sites.
The AGM at Piggot School will now start at 6pm, the Lantern Rally at Colleton in November will start at 6:30pm, and the Christmas Party at Desborough Collge will start at 6pm.
Please note these new start times and DO NOT ARRIVE BEFORE THE STATED TIME. If you do it is highly likely you will not be allowed on site, and parking outside a school, if even possible, is a dangerous thing to do.
Burns Night 2017Due to redevelopment at Hoburne Bashley they are no longer taking Caravan Rallies. We have been unable to find an alternative venue for our 2017 Burns Night Rally that was planned to take place at Hoburne. Unfortunately the Rally is cancelled.
We are looking at the possibility of holding a normal Rally on this weekend in place. Please watch this site for updates,

Autumn Ball - CancelledDue to low numbers the Autumn Ball has had to be cancelled this year. A Rally will still run, but without the Ball.

If you are interested in attending the Rally - Please contact the Rally Officers as soon as possible.
